A couple of weeks ago, a Girl Scout in our extended family solicited our order for a box of cookies. How could we resist her pitch, which went something like this: "when are you gonna sign up for cookies?"Yep, it's time for the great spring ritual known as "Girl Scout Cookie Program," the official Girl Scout literature calls it that so LAist has adopted it, too. As any good Girl Scout already knows, she cannot sell cookies online but can send emails to friends telling them that they are selling cookies. You can find the Los Angeles Girl Scout Council here.

Has a Los Angeles girl scout approached you yet? Tell us about it below...we've been looking for pictures on Flickr, but only found a few out-of-state pics.

We're so into cookie season that we plan to post our own pictures of cookie booths at local groceries in the coming weeks, but we also encourage readers to send us snaps of Girl Scouts spotted selling cookies in your neighborhood and you may just win MORE COOKIES.

What Girl Scout troop have you seen that sells their cookies in the most "Los Angeles-like" manner? Skits from "Troop Beverly Hills" don't count...


Lisa over at blogging.LA reports that she bought cookies from some Scouts at the Ralphs on Ventura and Vineland in Studio City. She links to a Daily News article about how the rains are hampering Girl Scout sales this year. If you see a soggy Scout this week, buy some cookies from her and help raise troop's sales quota.
